Re CK (Children): Care Proceedings, habitual residence, Art 15

Family proceedings – Orders in family proceedings. The Family Division found that, for the purposes of art 8 of Council Regulation (EC) 2201/2003 (Brussels II), the place of habitual residence of the children with whom the proceedings were concerned was the United Kingdom. The UK was better placed to hear the evidence as, among other things, the options for the children's future care were not focused in Lithuania but in the UK.
